Description Technical Specs
Internet sites are often sought when beginners start exploring family history. The challenge is where to turn to when researching African American ancestry. This webinar, presented by Angela Walton-Raji examines resources that provide guidance for the unique problems facing descendants of slaves. The webinar begins with a full introduction to Afrigeneas, the oldest continually operating African American genealogy website. From daily online chats and over 20 message boards, the visitor to this site finds a community of volunteers to provide assistance with their beginning research problems. Afrigeneas provides unique resources such as the slave database and a searchable archived message database that retrieves African American genealogical queries back to 1997. Popular subscription sites like Ancestry and Footnote are among useful sources for primary source documents such as emancipation records, service records of US Colored Troops and more. But free sites provide good resources like Cyndi's List and USGenweb which provide sound links to other African American sites and one extremely useful resource is found on the ever popular FamilySearch. AfriGeneas has also joined the genealogy blogging community. Blogs are continually surfacing reflecting personal research journeys, while weekly columns and podcasts provide advice for research challenges. In addition one can also find basic instructional videos for African American research as well. There are many options to be found online, and the African Ancestored researcher will have an abundance of resources to offer a hand in providing tips, suggestions, and instruction.

This class was presented to a live webinar (online seminar) audience on August 31, 2011. 1 hour 45 minutes, plus handouts.

First time hearing Angela, but I am loving her!  I sincerely hope you will bring her back again. I can't wait to look for her website and find her on the You Tube. Thank you so much for bringing her to us!
  • Great overview of the types of resources available.  Thrilled to hear about the RG 105 NC Freedmen's Bureau records. Great webinar.
  • Lot of new leads, even for one who is fairly experienced.
  • Ms. Walton-Raji had great info, wonderfully presented and organized. I work in a public library in Virginia and am trying to improve my skills for helping our African-American patrons research their families, so this was excellent. Thank you so much.
